Quite allot of challenges there...
I like the ~5' floor to ceiling wall around the electrical panel, furnace and water heater... I would suggest making the width of it (currently marked at 5') as wide as if there was the hotwater heater in front of the furnace. That way if the hotwater heater ever needs to be replaced, you can get it around the furnace and out of there and a new one into the location.
sump pump area. I assume this is below the grade of the floor, I would build over the top of this with a step or riser, with step/riser being a lid you lift to access the sump pump. This way you can build all the way to the outer way and gain the 19' x 2' wide space.
Well Pump wall area.. I would build the screen 'wall' at about 36" from the wall on the right, encasing the well pump in a sound proof closet with a door. This would be behind the AT screen and hidden.
You'll definitelly need DD + GG + Channel to isolate all the sound in/out of this room. With all the mechanical in the area, you are going to want to go to the top level of sound proofing.
Maybe a room within a room.
BTW, what is your budget? What are you end goals? 2 rows of seating? Atmos? 16x9 or Scope?
